Yesterday I had the wonderful privilege of visiting the windy city for a day on a business trip. Thankfully my meeting ended early and I had about six hours to play tourist before I had to catch my evening flight back to Atlanta.
I visited Chicago for the first time last June and I believe my expectations were too high because I was really dissapointed. I'd always heard that Chicago was considered a "baby New York", well that wasn't my experience. But this time around the city seemed vibrant and much more fast paced, despite the cold and rainy weather in APRIL !
I spent the day with my good friend Delandis who is a featured dancer in the Chicago production of the broadway musical Wicked . We spent the day shopping on North Michigan Avenue and feeding our faces at Grand Lux Cafe .
Since Chicago is the home of Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson, I kept looking around to see if there was a statue erected in her honor somewhere, but it looks like the city is waiting to see if her next project will be a success. Lol!
I'll be flying back to Chicago next week on business, but this time I'll be meeting someone that you all know but have never seen. He's a consistent presence on many SGL blogs. Can you guess who? You'll know by this time next week.
